Switchbak™ Dog Harness

harness with pockets

Color

Selected: Granite Gray

The Switchbak Harness has the padded comfort of an everyday dog harness with handle, plus the bonus functionality carrying small essentials. The two low-profile zippered pockets have room to stash those day-to-day necessities like pick-up bags, a leash, or some treats.

It features two leash attachment options: a V-ring centered on the back and a reinforced webbing loop at the chest, great for redirecting dogs that pull on leash. Dial in the right fit with high adjustability and a padded belly strap - critical for stable gear carry and when giving a little boost with the low-profile handle. All in all, the Switchbak melds comfort and convenience into a performance harness ready for both town and trail.

    Cute and functional!

    I love every Ruffwear item I’ve gotten and this is no exception. It’s a good size and has good storage for longer hikes with my pup. The quality of the material is great and I anticipate it last for many many miles!

    Love This Pack

    This pack is quality. Fits my big lab well. Can't wait to load it up a bit and take him on a trail hike.

    Love This!

    What a wonderful idea! My dog can carry all of her own supplies. Well built and low profile. I bought a medium. I am able to fit a standard 16oz plastic water bottle in each side pocket along with a collapsible bowl,treats and poo bags.

    light and pretty

    My dog ​​always pulls on the collar and this harness allows me not to hurt her and control her better, plus I can put some light objects in her compartment.

    Love it so much this is our 2nd!!

    This is a great, durable, and comfortable harness! We've tried so many over the years for our 85 lbs pitty but never found one like this Ruffwear! We love it so much, it's actually our 2nd one! The straps are padded, which protects our guy's furless armpits and the large padded chest section distributes the strength of our bully breed well. Other harness irritated his sensitive skin where they rubbed, but that's not a concern with this Ruffwear! The original lasted for years (and we definitely put it through some tough adventures). It washes well, too, which is a huge plus! Definitely recommend this product and Ruffwear every time!
